Take a Book Leave a Book: Calgary’s Little Free Libraries

Little Free Library Calgary (Family Fun Calgary)

Perhaps when you’ve been walking or biking around town you’ve seen little boxes full of books in neighbourhoods all around Calgary. These Little Free Libraries are a really fun initiative that’s been popping up in cities all over North America. The concept is simple: you leave a book or two that you don’t need anymore and then borrow books that your neighbours have left. It’s a great way to not only encourage reading with your kids but to also get them out and about in the neighbourhood.

These little libraries are becoming increasingly common in Calgary. You can see a map here of the registered libraries, but keep in mind things can change quickly. You can also get more information about the Little Free Library movement at the LittleFreeLibrary.org website.

One other thing we love about these libraries is how cute and creative some of the little boxes are. Do you have a really nice-looking one in your neighbourhood? Tell us about it!
